All My Shoes Come in Two’s
Little, Brown, 1957.
Illustrated by Norman Hoberman.
Mary Ann Hoberman's very first book, a collaboration with her
husband Norman. In bouncing verses and droll drawings, the world
of shoes is explored and celebrated. Inspired by the couple's children,
the poems pay homage to sneakers and sandals, to slippers and snow
boots and skates, finally ending with:
But no matter what I wear
It’s most fun when my feet are bare!
Look inside the book!
